Why hate religion so much, people? I grew up in China, without any religion, but at fifteen, despite my family's anger, I became a Christian. Be glad that you HAVE religion, because not all places in this day and age do.

I'm scared after watching this. Liberalism must survive people, we have to keep the dream alive.

The most important difference in the struggle between secularists and fundamentalists today as opposed to the past are the cultural memes of freedom and equality. While the world may be about to lurch to the far right, we will never entirely return to the middle ages. Too many people want freedom. Too many people believe in civil rights. Everyone has some basic understanding of and belief in science. Only fringe people make burnt offerings or read entrails. Of the people who believe in astrology, I suspect only a small percent rely on it to make big decisions. Religion will always be a means of control, but in the West, at least, it will be tempered by liberal ideas.

"Only the elimination of all conservative Christians will allow all Americans to be free and the world to no longer have to live in fear of the U.S.A.'s imperialist, terrorist holy war on the world. "Conservative" ideology has never helped mankind in any way. History shows us this. Fact shows us this. It has not only never helped mankind in anyway, it has oppressed, murdered, raped and killed. History shows us this. Fact shows us this. You decide what kind of country you want to live in."

How does anyone know that population decrease is going to be "voluntary"? What a hubristic statement. It's just as likely that there will be a global die-off when oil decline begins.

I am concluding the book... so I got a better perspective of the talk than if was not reading it. Well done Eric!
